“What is it to love God with all the heart, and all the soul, and all the mind and all the strength, other than to be entirely lost in, and consumed by, a higher attraction, which makes us pass by everything else, and causes us to know to find end to enjoy an object for our love, in which we lose ourselves altogether?...It is to have longed and languished for what could quiet the home-sickness of the heart, to have tried everything that could be tried, and to have been disappointed with it all; and now, at length, to have found the true, the perfect, the holy Object of the love of one’s heart, to receive God Himself in the soul, and in this love to be supremely happy.” -Abraham Kuyper, Near to God
"I, a miserable young man, supremely miserable even in the very outset of my youth, had pleaded to You for chastity, and said, 'Grant me chastity and self-control, but not yet.' For I was afraid that you would hear me soon, and soon deliver me from the disease of concupiscence, which I desired to have satisfied rather than extinguished....But You, O Lord, are good and merciful, and your right hand had respect unto the profoundness of my death, and removed from the bottom of my heart that abyss of corruption...How sweet did it suddenly become to me to be without the delights of trifles! And what at one time I feared to lose, it was now a joy to me to put away. For You cast them away from me, You the true and highest sweetness. You cast them away, and instead of them did enter in Yourself- sweeter than all pleasure...Now was my soul free from the gnawing cares of seeking and getting, and of wallowing and exciting the itch of lust. And I babbled unto You my brightness, my riches, and my health, the Lord my God."-Augustine
"The knowledge of God in Christ can fill the insatiable mind, satisfy the vast desires, and settle the staggering soul…Divine knowledge satisfies our desires, nourishes the soul, is bread to our hunger, light to our eyes, music to our ears, a cordial, to our hearts…it is the light of life, spiritual, eternal.”-Stephen Charnock
